Doctors, parents, and politicians have been misled into thinking that these mutilations are beneficial, necessary and harmless. International respected experts in the fields of medicine, science, politics, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history and religion present the latest research, documentation and analysis of this world-wide problem, focusing on the ethical, political and legal aspects of sexual mutilation; the cost and burden to healthcare systems; the latest medical research; anatomical and function consequences; religious and cultural aspects; psychological aspects; and the world-wide campaign to end sexual mutilation.

Every year, in the United States and the third world combined, 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls are circumcised. Whether because of perceived medical, cultural, or religious necessity, most of these parents feel they have no alternative but to allow their children to undergo this surgery. Sparking intense debate, the circumcision of children is a highly controversial and complex phenomenon that touches a variety of sociological areas, such as religious beliefs, identity issues, medical conceptualizations, fear, and superstition. The contributors to this volume comprise an international panel of experts in the fields of medicine, psychology, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history, theology, and politics. In 18 chapters they discuss the history of circumcision; document the physical and psychological consequences of circumcision; present the latest anatomical discoveries about the male prepuce; analyze the role of circumcision in various traditions; reveal the medical industry's investment in the practice; describe current legislative efforts to protect children from circumcision; and outline effective, culturally sensitive methods that are being implemented today to safeguard the human rights of at-risk children. For its insights into this troubling aspect of culture, Understanding Circumcision: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to a Multi-Dimensional Problem is a critically important contribution to the growing body of literature on this subject.

In seiner ethnographischen Studie analysiert Mathis Danelzik die strategischen und ethischen Herausforderungen von Kampagnen gegen die Praktiken der Genitalverstümmelung. Er zeigt auf, dass solche Kampagnen zum Aushandlungsort komplexer und tiefgreifender sozio-kultureller Veränderung werden, was vielfältige Konflikte hervorbringt. Dabei wird deutlich, das sich mit dem heute dominanten Ideal kulturell sensibler Kampagnen nicht nur Hoffnungen und erste Erfolge verbinden, sondern dieses auch weite Teile der Kampagnenpraxis und die damit verbundenen Konflikte überdeckt. Der Autor entwickelt eine alternative kulturorientierte, kommunikationssoziologische und machtsensible Perspektive auf Kampagnen und entfaltet diese anhand von vier tansanischen Fallbeispielen.

Surgery inevitably inflicts some harm on the body. At the very least, it damages the tissue that is cut. These harms are often clearly outweighed by the overall benefits to the patient. But what if the benefits of surgery do not outweigh the harms? Cutting to the Core examines a range of controversial surgeries including infant circumcision, female genital cutting, the separation of conjoined twins, surgical sex assignment and reassignment, and limb and face transplantation. When, if ever, do the benefits of these surgeries outweigh their costs? Should a surgeon perform dangerous procedures that are not clearly of benefit, even if the patient consents to them? Recognized scholars in medical ethics, law, health policy, and philosophy consider the ethics of these contested surgeries in this groundbreaking collection. Book jacket.

A Companion to Muslim Ethics

Taking ethics seriously means coming to terms with the real world where our sense of right and wrong plays out. At their best, faith traditions require daily life to face the tests of philosophy --- and confront philosophy with the tests of daily living. If faith-inspired ethics govern all of one's life, guiding values must constantly be interpreted to reach a practical result. Does this make ethics into laws that bind in the name of a community of virtue? Where would that leave one's choice on how to live the good life? Muslims have grappled with the answers for the better part of fourteen centuries in matters of law, social practice and theology. Indeed, this is what the Quran is really about, in calling on `those possessed of minds' to strive for belief with a social conscience. A Companion to Muslim Ethics journeys into Islam's conception of the good, shared with other great traditions --- and the ways in which its teachings find expression in political, social and religious life. Leading experts look at gender equality, ecology, nonviolence, dispute resolution, health and finance as much as the traditions of art, narrative and intellectual debate. This book will appeal to all those interested in how reason, faith and circumstance shape moral choices in an increasingly globalised world.
